Firefox XP 2.0.0.8 ubuntu 2.0.0.6. Why?

I am using XP and Ubuntu 7.10. In both operating system I am using the same profile.
(Symbolic link to XP partition).

However, due to the difference in versions Firefox always start with a addon check.

So why is Ubuntu not on version 2.0.0.8. That would solve this problem.

Ubuntu modifies the Firefox files to create a hook into the Ubuntu help system. 
  Also, they need to pack it into a .deb to be distributed through the Ubuntu 
package manager.  I'm sure that 2.0.0.8 will be available, but, because Firefox 
is always updating, 2.0.0.9 or 2.0.0.10 may be out then :-(

You can install the latest .tar.gz from the Mozilla site but it will probably 
disable help in _all_ Ubuntu applications.

I heard something that 2.0.0.7 was released, but not a total fix to the problem (security related?), so I understood that for that reason Ubuntu held off on deploying it.

They might subscribe to the Debian philosophy of only patching security holes rather than upgrade to the latest version... I know Debian does that with Samba, I think everything Debian...

Now 2.0.0.8 is out, still did not receive it via an update.

I suggest we look towards Ubuntu forums for answers.

I know everyone says you can't... but...
in terminal -gksudo firefox.
FF will open  and you can Click -Help- check for 
updates and it will update you to 2.0.0.8.

Thanks for that good word. Indeed FF 2.0.0.8 and a newer TB 2.0.0.6 were waiting for me to fetch.

Firefox is turning into a piece of crap. First, there is only 1 profile, the default profile. Second, after the first 2.0.0.6 update wiped out the profile settings (again), the automatic check for updates was turned off. This morning the customized profile settings went MIA again, Firefox decided it was version 2.0.0.5 (per the help, about firefox) and automatically downloaded 2.0.0.6; even though 2.0.0.6 had already been installed on July 31.

XP SP2 DDE problems with Firefox anyone? (v.2.0.0.2 and 2.0.0.3)

Every time I launched a shortcut, or typed a URL from the "run..." line, I got an error message: :"Windows cannot find '[full url here]'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, :and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then :click Search." [Dialogue button: OK] The site would launch normally, but the annoying dialogue would always pop up.

Problem just started with 2.0.01 and unfortunately the browser updated to 2.0.0.2 before I could stop it but problems still there.

Firefox 2.0.0.2 & 2.0.0.3 niggly problem
I just upgraded both my desktop and my laptop to FF v2.0.0.2 a couple days ago. Both began doing the same annoying thing. When I click a URL shortcut on my desktop or a link in my newsreader, an error box pops up saying "File http://blahblahblah or one of its components not found. Make sure the path and filename are correct." Then FF goes ahead and loads the page. This doesn't happen if FF is already running. If it's not running, it happens every time. I just downloaded 2.0.0.3. Same story. Any clues? -- Dale Beckett Dale Beckett wrote:...
